We had wonderful shrimp cocktail at the Blue Marlin. I would say the best cocktail in Puerto Penasco. We'll stop in the next time we're down there.

I hope the app doesn’t need me to write a certain number of words, because I only have one: impeccable. From start to finish, food, ambiance, service, everything was magical.

We went here based on a friends experience and we were not disappointed. The food & presentation were excellent. It is a quaint little place just off the main road. I believe there were 3 or 4 tables outside and 3 tables inside. We sat...More

We did not make a reservation, we were just walking by and saw the sign and read the menu. An English-speaking waiter came to greet us so we entered. The margaritas were excellent.
